Veterans' Affairs Returning To PG

Monday will be a day many in this community have been waiting for. The federal Veterans Affairs Minister, Kent Hehr will be here to announce plans to re-open the Veterans Affairs office and speak to Budget 2016 measures which improve support for Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans and their families.  The local office and eight others were closed in 2012 by the federal Conservatives, who said there simply wasn’t enough demand for the services offered there. Exactly one year ago, during the federal election campaign, then-candidate Justin Trudeau announced he would re-open those offices if elected.
